    The last time ITV News Asia Correspondent Debi Edward came to Wuhan it was in April for the end of the city’s 76-day coronavirus lockdown. She said she was met off the train by teams of officials in hazmat suits, were tested for Covid-19 and when the ITV News team went back to Beijing they faced two weeks of strictly monitored quarantine – and another test. She said: “So it was rather surreal to return this week and film at a pool party packed with hundreds of people, young and old, splashing around screaming and singing with unbridled delight to European dance music being played by a DJ on a stage.” “We arrived for the final night of a summer festival which was given the go ahead after the city was declared virus free.” • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
